I'll admit that with *just* the declaration and assignment in the if,
it's not that bad, if others are strongly in favor of not reproducing the test
vs the enum value.

Perhaps I'm just reacting to previous uses of assignments within conditionals
in gcc, which looked more like

  if (test1
      && test2
      && (x = foo, test3(x))
      && test4(x)
      && (y = bar(x), test5))

and which caused all sorts of trouble.  Especially when the if conditional
expanded to fill an entire 80x25 screen.
